If you forgot your account, you can recover it at the Google Recovery.

From there, you can recover the account and password you associated with your Galaxy S3.

But if you could no longer recover your account, or it won't unlock even if the details that you have input are correct or the WiFi on your S3 is not activated, you need to perform a factory data reset. This will erase all the user data on your device. Therefore, it is a must to backup all the contents of your device before doing so.

Sir I have forgotten my Android password it has very important contacts?

My Android version is 4.2.1 Jelly Bean

You may recover your phone without losing any of your data using your Google account credentials. Please do the following to recover your phone.

  • Make sure your phone is connected to the internet.
  • Tap on "Forgot Password" button on your screen.
  • Then sign-in using your Google account.
  • That's it. This will reset your current Password.

If you can't unlock your phone using your Google account, you might need to Hard Reset your phone. This will delete everything on your phone. Fortunately, Google automatically sync contacts when you first turn on your phone and sign into your Google account. So you can Hard Reset your phone without losing any of your contacts. To Hard Reset your device, please follow the instructions above on how to Hard Reset/recover an Android device. Then after the factory data reset, you may recovery you contacts by doing the following.

  • Usually, Your contacts will be automatically synced to your phone when you signed in to your Gmail account, so you don't have to import them anymore.
  • If it is not automatically synced, please open Contacts on your Apps list, then press menu button, then select import, then choose to import from your Gmail account, then save it.
  • That's it.

There are three ways to solve this issue:

Number One:

To reset the password/pattern, you need:

  • must know your Gmail account and password
  • must be connected via data connection or WiFi

If one is not met, you will need to do the following:

Number Two:

Use a software that will reset the pattern. You must have enabled USB debugging enabled to do this:

Download this: https://www.mediafire.com/?7se8s62sj1y5fpo

  • plug phone to computer
  • press the following (on your phone)

power button

volume up/down or both

home button (if any)

or reset button/hole

  • tap number 4 to reset the pattern

If the resolution above does not fix the issue, there is only one option left to do. Unfortunately, this procedure will delete all apps and data on your phone (unless it is stored in the SIM card or SD card)
